Lobster, Mango and Corn Salad in Watermelon and Grapefruit Vinaigrette
This recipe serves: 4  

For the Lobster Salad:
2 (1.5 pound) live Maine lobsters
3 ears sweet corn
1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 tablespoons fresh, chopped cilantro
salt, to taste
white pepper, to taste
1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded

For the Dressing:
1 cup watermelon, seeded
2 tablespoons grapefruit juice
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3/4 cup canola oil
whole cilantro leaves, for garnishing

Cooking Instructions
1. Cook the lobsters in a large pot of boiling salted water for 12 minutes. Let cool and remove the meat from the shells.

2. Chop the tail and joint meat into 1/2 inch pieces and reserve the whole claw meat for garnish.

3. In a medium pot of boiling salted water, cook the corn until tender, about 10 to 15 min. Let cool and cut the kernels from the cob.

4. Toss the lobster meat, corn, mango, red pepper, onion, celery, and cilantro in medium mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper.

5. To make the dressing, puree the watermelon, grapefruit juice, vinegar and Dijon mustard in a food processor or blender for 1 minute. With the motor running, slowly add canola oil. (This can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.)

6.Add about 1/2 cup of dressing to salad mixture, season with salt and white pepper and refrigerate for 2 hours. (Reserve the leftover dressing for another use.) Serve the salad over shredded iceberg lettuce on individual plates and garnish with a lobster claw and whole cilantro leaves.
